GALLERY M

This month at the gallery, Damien Hirst's contributions to fine contemporary art are documented and reflected with each iteration of his butterfly series. From one-of-a-kind original works to small editions, the Butterfly is synonymous with Hirst. His contributions inspired other genres like Fashion to further reference the elegance, love, and respect associated with this harmonious animal.

Contemporary Storytelling, a two person exhibition by Zoa Ace and Louis Recchia. The artist couple, Zoa Ace and Louis Recchia, have long influenced each other’s artwork, yet each maintains their own unique style. This body of work invites the viewers’ interpretations of their figurative narratives. They both like the idea of “art about art” mixing historical references, times, and styles in their oil on canvas paintings. view the exhibit online

William Havu Gallery
Order of Disappearance, a solo exhibition by renowned Denver painter, Amy Metier and on the mezzanine we are introducing Ohio based artist, Melinda Rosenberg.  Amy Metier states that, “The work in this show has been inspired by my time painting at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation, an artist’s residency in County Mayo, Ireland. Some paintings are influenced by a specific place; others respond to the light, the changing weather, the history, the ancient spirits and the mystery that infused my time and experience there. Each painting develops intuitively and the process invariably involves reworking, visibly painting out areas, even completely starting over to meet an elusive end goal that exists in my subconscious.” Melinda Rosenberg paints, cuts, and “folds” found wood to create abstract wall installations that intersect painting and sculpture. The artist’s process begins with collecting scraps of wood found in old barns and lumber yards throughout rural Ohio. Rosenberg then repurposes and alters the wood by painting directly on its surface before sanding, cutting, and adjoining the various pieces together. The result is an origami-like construction where divergent pieces of wood meet in an unexpected, yet harmonious balance.

Casting Currents, featuring: Ana Žanić, Allison Svoboda, Bonny Lhotka, Danny Williams, Patricia Finley, and Sharon Strasburg.
It is fascinating, inspiring and reflective; it is pure and tranquil while simultaneously tempestuous and forbidding. It is impossible to control, unreliable and marvelously mysterious. It is water, and it is the creative source of expression for the six artists in CASTING CURRENTS. Whether utilizing it as a medium itself, finding inspiration in simply viewing it, or looking to its depths for further meaning, this group exhibition explores the fluidity, symbolism and representation of our life source. Join us to explore connections between water and artwork, as well as showcasing our harmonious relationships with the outside world.

Ed Fairburn is an English artist based in Cardiff, Wales, whose ability to combine the geography of our facial features with the geography of the earth leads to a startling and compelling synthesis of the two.

Hangama Amiri Henna Night/Shabe Kheena. In this new body of work, Amiri sensitively explores the complex interior landscapes of domestic spaces. Through imagery that honors close bonds and togetherness, she places particular emphasis on women within these spaces, a subtle form of resistance against the reality of limited rights and visibility of women in Afghanistan under Taliban rule. Amiri’s piercingly tender textile works focus on passage from room to room within the home, emblematic of transitions through life, and the family rituals and traditions that take place there

Jill Soukup’s solo exhibition, Accelerated Calm. View online "There is an exquisite pause in the intersection of fundamentally different elements, circling each other in a dance of opposition and communion. The juxtaposition of an active adjective, like "accelerated," for instance, and a quiet one, like "calm," explores conceptual contrast, inviting insight and introspection. This body of work reflects the personal calm I experienced when visiting the ranch. It is a reminder of the simpler things, a return to roots and the earth, an embrace of time suspended in the gentle sway of a horse and little else. It's a whispered confidence in peaceful places and spaces to come". - Jill Soukup

Martha Hughes exhibit, Above Beyond. In her latest series of large-scale oil paintings, Martha Hughes utilizes vibrant color combinations and asymmetrical forms to envelop the viewer, creating new spaces, perspectives, and narratives. Meticulous brushstrokes of explosive yellows, greens, blues, and pinks reverberate against the hard lines, edges, and angles of geometric shapes. Color and form are in constant conversation, creating a complex tension between exterior and interior, lightness and weight, play and precision, independence and coexistence.

The McKenney-Hall Indian Gallery.
Thomas McKenney was appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 1916 by President James Madison. He championed Native American causes for the next several decades at a time when tribal culture was often on a collision course with land-hungry whites and the U.S. Government. McKenney worked tirelessly on his Indian Gallery, a collection of artifacts and portraits of the visiting Indians by the famous painter Charles Bird King. However, in 1830, McKenney was dismissed by President Jackson -- they had quarreled about the removal of the Cherokee from their homeland. McKinley had also battled with a Congressional committee investigating his expenditure of $3,100 for the Indian portraits. Therefore, it was on his own that he launched a project to publish a series of large portfolios with hand-colored lithographs made after King's original paintings. More information

Featuring New Work By:
Noelle Phares And Philip Tarlow. Noelle Phares brings a fresh perspective into her contemporary landscape paintings through examination of the tension between organic and synthetic. As an environmental scientist by training, she allows the same topics that drove her work in the natural sciences to now guide her creative endeavors. This new work integrates a number of directions and styles I've experimented with over time. Abstraction and realism join, and elements of collage disrupt predictability, allowing the viewer to create their own interpretation of each composition, and return again and again to a new experience. Philip writes, "Recently, I had a very challenging health scare. When I learned that my sight would be saved through the ground breaking surgery performed by Dr. Seibold, once again I felt like I could fly! Thus the title: I FLY, with the subtitle in Greek: PETAOW. As a gesture of gratitude, this exhibition is a benefit, with a large portion of sales going to the University of Colorado Dept of Ophthalmology, where it will support research.
